It's odd -- TV, as a whole, has gotten a lot edgier since the 90s (when "Jerry Springer" was considered 'out there'), but the WWE seems to have regressed.
There was an old bit they did back when I was watching where Stevie Richards was the leader (dressed in Mormon-mission attire) of a group called RTC - "Right To Censor" -- which was based on the PTC (parents television council) and their constant public war of words with Vince over the content of his product. They'd come out and put blankets over women who were scantily clad, or would stop promos that were getting "too edgy," and the crowd would have fun booing. I was thinking last night "man, the PTC ended up winning that fight."
I kind of guessed they would tone the product down while Linda McMahon was running for Congress, but I'm surprised it's still as tame as it is now.
